Stockholm Syndrome

                                                                What Is To Be Done?

‘’Stockholm syndrome, or capture-bonding, is a psychological phenomenon in which hostages express empathy and sympathy and have positive feelings toward their captors, sometimes to the point of defending and identifying with the captors. These feelings are generally considered irrational in light of the danger or risk endured by the victims, who essentially mistake a lack of abuse from their captors for an act of kindness.[1] [2] The FBI's Hostage Barricade Database System shows that roughly 8 percent of victims show evidence of Stockholm syndrome.[3]

Stockholm syndrome can be seen as a form of traumatic bonding, which does not necessarily require a hostage scenario, but which describes "strong emotional ties that develop between two persons where one person intermittently harasses, beats, threatens, abuses, or intimidates the other."[4] One commonly used hypothesis to explain the effect of Stockholm syndrome is based on Freudian theory. It suggests that the bonding is the individual's response to trauma in becoming a victim. Identifying with the aggressor is one way that the ego defends itself. When a victim believes the same values as the aggressor, they cease to be perceived as a threat’’.[5]

April this year magnifies the death and suffering of my brothers and sisters. Nothing is new it is just increased in a wider scale. Black Africans are dying, tortured, raped mutilated each day since the colonial era. Civil and tribal conflict is one way of dividing and rule of previously colonialism, then imperialism and new-colonialism.
Changing the names of oppression is not making the problem go away. It just creates confusion for the oppressed Black African heart and mind. It makes us helpless. It distracts our attention from the root cause of our problem which is new-colonialism, imperialism, and religious fundamentalism.
When this kind of problem exacerbates we go to demonstrate to the agencies govt. that are the main source of the problem: such as America, UK, France and our countries puppet ‘’leaders’’ dictators who are the god son and daughters of neo- colonialism.
We start crying crocodiles tear for the victims on social media; it became the fashion of the month. The talk of the time.
In Ethiopia the brutal regime of Woyane has created the current problem for the Ethiopians by sending the young citizens for slavery to Middle East. Now it declared 3 days morning political game.
But the problem has to be dealt from the root. Which if Black Africans must unite and fight to became the people who decide on the fate of their mother continent: Africa.
Otherwise as we say in Ethiopia it becomes a game ‘’ WOHA KIDA WOHA MELIS’’
Let’s have a dialogue on this issue.
The problem cannot be solved by petition. Demonstration to rotten rusty global corrupt system
